Preceding His sacrifice for humanity in Gethsemane and on the Cross, the Savior Jesus Christ foretold that in the last days – our days – “ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars.” He prophesied that “nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” (Matthew 24:6-7). This prophecy is being fulfilled every day as the controlled Establishment media beat the war drums, as brash politicians threaten other nations with war, as conspirators plot to force world government upon mankind at the point of the sword, and as armies form, train, arm, and position themselves for bloodshed and conquest.
While real wars rage in dozens of nations from Afghanistan to Syria, and from Ukraine to Sudan, rumors of wars swirl, portending mayhem in other locations. Iran, Latvia, Poland, Japan, Taiwan, and North Korea are a few prominent spots singled out as potential flashpoints. It is about the North Korean question that I wish to write.
At the present time, the Trump administration is beating the war drums and rallying support for a preemptive war against North Korea. President Trump has not only insulted North Korea’s puppet dictator Kim Jong-un, calling him “rocket man,” among other slurs, but he has promised to visit North Korea with “fire [and] fury.” With this “fire [and] fury,” President Trump has vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea.
To back up the president’s inflammatory, childish, and threatening rhetoric, the U.S. military is busy positioning our troops, armaments, machinery, aircraft, and ships in Asia. Our top military leaders should be smart enough to know that such a move is a severe provocation. Think of the situation in reverse. How would we respond if North Korea placed its troops in Mexico and Canada, paraded its warships off our coasts, held drills with the Mexican military simulating an invasion of the Southern states, and all while Kim Jong-un threatened us with total destruction and “fire and fury”? We would not tolerate such an affront. In all likelihood, we would consider these moves acts of war and respond accordingly. Yet this is precisely what the United States is doing to North Korea (not to mention Iran) at the present time – and we are somehow shocked that North Korea has increased its number of missile tests, drills, and war preparations.
According to numerous sources, our president is gearing up for a war with North Korea potentially in the first part of 2018. While I have always been one to quickly shoot down hyped rumors of “imminent” world war, I can imagine a smaller North Korean conflict beginning sooner than later with President Trump at the helm. While a major war with North Korea could very potentially lead to a world war with Russia and China, I do not believe now is the time.
I believe President Trump – who, lest we forget, campaigned on a warmongering platform and has always been pro-war and pro-military establishment – might risk a limited strike against North Korea in the near future. The president would probably order a limited strike on North Korean military installations, mirroring his unwarranted Tomahawk missile strike in Syria back in April. Such a strike would be small enough that it would not give Russia and China a pretext for war. A large strike, on the other hand, or one that involved tactical nuclear weapons, would not only increase the world’s hatred of the United States, but would give North Korea’s masters – Russia and China – a pretext for war.
Since 1999, I have predicted a future Asian conflict either in Taiwan or North Korea precipitating World War III – and I hold firm to that prediction. However, several things still have to happen before that terrible event will be thrust upon us. The stars aren’t figuratively aligned just yet for World War III. I think that will be a handful of years in the future. Yet, the clouds of world war can clearly be seen gathering on the horizon, so do not become complacent. Now is the time to prepare to safeguard your family, relocate to a safer location, gather a food storage, get out of debt, develop useful skills, get healthy and into shape, and humble yourself before God.
National repentance in sackcloth and ashes does not seem forthcoming, however. Whether puppet Republicans or puppet Democrats hold power, it matters not – the elite Establishment which runs the show pushes the war agenda. Since the socialist Woodrow Wilson dragged us into World War I on behalf of Zionist and internationalist conspirators, nearly every president has promoted the war agenda on behalf of their elite handlers. Donald Trump is no different. Despite what some in the “alternative” media claim, President Trump is nearly as beholden to the powers-that-be as his predecessors in the Oval Office.
During the 2016 election, Newt Gingrich said on FOX News that the only reason some of the elites dislike President Trump is because “he hasn’t been through the initiation rites. He doesn’t belong to the secret society.” While that may be true, it is equally true that President Trump is in lock-step with the elite’s militaristic agenda. He is an unflinching ally of the terrorist regime in Israel. He rubs shoulders with Rothschild and Zionist agents and has appointed them to high level positions in his administration. He has likewise surrounded himself with dozens of members of the insidious Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). He promotes the Establishment’s Muslim bogeyman narrative. He is an unprincipled populist who has flip-flopped on the issues almost as often as Mitt Romney did. He is a crass individual, an almost pathological egotist, and an admitted serial adulterer. How as he been able to fool those in the “alternative” media who so loudly claim to love the truth and to fight against the oppression of the global conspiracy?
As if fighting a half dozen undeclared, unconstitutional , and immoral wars of aggression was not already enough, the Washington regime seeks to add one more to the list (and likely another in Iran if our president makes good on his campaign promises or lives up to his long-standing alliance with Israel’s elite). What follows are three reasons why attacking North Korea would be an insanely foolish, not to mention immoral and unconstitutional, action, and why we must not tolerate it.
1. The first and most important reason why we should not attack North Korea is that North Korea has not attacked us. Offensive and preemptive warfare is never just. The only just war that may be waged is a legitimately defensive one.
Please note that there is a major difference between preemptive war and defensive war. In the former, a nation is responding to perceived threats, potential problems, fictitious slights, entangling alliances, and hypothetical situations. In the latter, war is waged as a last resort when an enemy has definitively declared or waged war against you, your people, or your legitimate interests; and this only after the standard of peace and friendship has been raised. Since North Korea has not declared or waged war against us, to attack or bomb them would constitute preemptive or offensive war and therefore could never be considered just. It would be yet one more war of conquest and aggression, like every war the United States has fought in the past 160 years.
When the bombing starts, it will be irrelevant whether the controlled press reports that it is being carried out in the so-called name of “national security” or “national defense.” The fact is that if North Korea has not attacked us or initiated the conflict, we have no right to attack them. Period. In the same way, we had no right to invade Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, or Syria. None of these nations had attacked us, and none posed a legitimate threat. Thus, we were the aggressor and are guilty of mass war crimes.
Additionally, we seem to have forgotten that the Korean War – an undeclared and pointless war waged by President Truman at the behest of the United Nations – ended 64 years ago. Yes, North Korea verbally threatens us, but so, too, do we threaten them. Yes, the North Koreans are testing advanced weapons – weapons which we have not only had for decades, but which we have aimed at North Korea. We have become supreme hypocrites. We have rejected the attitude of our Founding Fathers which was to extend the hand of friendship to the world in peacetime. We have rejected the Golden Rule set forth by the Lord Jesus Christ, which is to treat others as we wish to be treated. No, we should never roll over and let ourselves be abused by thugs either at home or abroad, but we must not allow our legitimate defensive preparations to mutate into hatred and aggressive behavior as it has done in the Middle East and in our relations with the Muslim world, and as it threatens to do regarding North Korea.
Lastly, a nation which initiates a war cannot expect to receive the support and blessings of Heaven. If it conquers, it will do so based purely on its own temporal, mortal strength, and not because of the divine intervention of the Almighty. Our forefathers who declared Independence from the tyrannical British monarchy were sincere Christians fighting for their Liberty, their families, and their land. They humbled themselves before God and were not guilty of initiating the war. Indeed, they spent years petitioning for a redress of grievances before finally taking up the sword against their oppressors. Because of their devotion to God, their innocence in beginning the conflict, and the justice of their cause, God blessed and defended them. He fought their battles, and often in supernatural ways.
Today, however, if we choose to initiate a war against a nation which has not harmed us – even one as despicable as communist North Korea – we will not only forfeit any claim on God’s superintending power and protection, but we will incur His wrath upon us. The choice is ours.
2. A second major reason why an attack on North Korea would be wrong is because it would most definitely be undeclared and, thus, unconstitutional. You will recall that George Washington stated in his Farewell Address that “the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all.” The president, as well as the other elected representatives in government, is oath-bound to uphold, defend, protect, and enforce the Constitution’s plain provisions. This is a sacred duty. This is the sole reason a president is elected. No president has a mandate to do whatever he chooses; his sole duty is to defend the rights of the People by obeying and upholding the U.S. Constitution.
Almost any attack on North Korea would be launched as either an offensive or preemptive strike. Just war theory condemns such attacks. The scriptures condemn them as immoral. And the U.S. Constitution prohibits the president from launching them by placing the duty to make war exclusively in the hands of Congress. Unbeknownst to most people, the president is only the Commander-in-Chief during wartime. It is thus wrong to call the president “Commander-in-Chief” in peacetime.
Furthermore, war can only be declared by Congress. Notwithstanding the so-called War Powers Act and other such war bills (all of which are null and void because they violate the Constitution), the president has no legitimate authority to take the United States to war of his own accord. Nor does the president have the authority to bomb or attack anyone for any reason unless Congress first declares war. The only exceptions to this rule are the defensive use of troops in the event of a surprise attack upon the nation or in the suppression of legitimate insurrection. Otherwise, for a president to take the initiative to call up, mobilize, deploy, or utilize American troops without a declaration of war from Congress is unconstitutional and unlawful. Such a gross violation of one’s oath of office is a serious offense. As a minimum, it is grounds for immediate impeachment.
If President Trump launches a war against North Korea, I will join the chorus of voices calling for his impeachment – albeit my reason will be grounded in the Constitution, not sectarian bigotry and paranoia. Men come and go, but the Constitution remains “sacredly obligatory” upon each of us. We are a nation of laws, not of men. Each elected representative in our government must be held strictly accountable for upholding and enforcing the constitutional laws of the land, and must be punished when they violate their solemn oaths of office. President Trump is no exception.
3. The third reason why we should not attack North Korea is the chance of such an attack escalating into a world war with Soviet Russia and Red China. While I do not believe a limited strike on North Korean military installations will bring about a world war, and that we still have a number of years left to prepare for that cataclysmic event, it would nevertheless take us to the brink and increase tensions unnecessarily. And since the chaos of war often foils even the best-laid plans, the chance of incidentally escalating a localized conflict into a regional or world war dramatically increases. This is one reason why war must always be a last resort.
The reader must understand that communism is not dead. The USSR never collapsed, but faked its demise in order to fool the West and lull us into a false sense of security. For the most part, this plan has succeeded and the average person is not only oblivious to the communist threat, but supports communist principles from “free” education to a national bank to wealth redistribution under the guise of taxation and welfare schemes. Truly, the Red Plague has never been more potent, pervasive, and powerful as it is today.
While we are under the Lord’s directive to raise the standard of peace even to our enemies, we must remember that Russia and China can never be our friends while they remain communist states. We cannot rely upon them for alliances or for support in dealing with North Korea, as I have heard certain media personalities propose. What’s more, the communists consider themselves at perpetual war with the “capitalists” and “bourgeoisie” (i.e. anyone not under their yoke of slavery), and they will not tolerate too many attacks upon one of their own. The communists have always been prepared to take one strategic step back for every two steps forward, but there are certain lines in the sand they will not allow their supreme enemy (i.e. the United States) to cross too far with impunity.
Contrary to what some think, Russia and Red China are very much allied in their opposition to the United States and in their support of communist world revolution. Contrary to what the “alternative” media talking heads claim, Vladimir Putin is a communist. He is not an opponent to the world conspiracy; he is part of their system. He is not a peacemaker; he is a warmonger who has attacked his own people, murdered his opposition, and rules with an iron fist. He is not our ally or friend, nor indeed can be. And he is certainly not the “savior of Christianity” I have so often heard him described as. Putin and his Chinese counterparts are the avowed enemies of everything traditional Americans hold dear.
We must not play into the communists’ hands by letting our foolish president and his conniving advisers hurl us into yet another war where innocent people the world over could suffer. Eventually, we will be forced to fight the communists because they want war and because they are sworn to world domination. However, we should not enter this war by initiating the conflict through our aggression – an act which would deprive us of God’s protection and of constitutional validity. Any attack on North Korea can only strengthen the communist position while diminishing our own in the eyes of the world, in the eyes of true constitutionalists, and in the eyes of our God.
In summary, the three main reasons we should not attack North Korea are as follows: 1) Our cause is not just if we initiate the war. By starting the conflict, we become the aggressor and deprive ourselves of divine help. 2) The Constitution does not give the president the authority to take us to war without a congressional declaration. Doing so is a violation of the president’s oath and would be grounds for immediate impeachment. 3) Initiating this war plays into the communists’ hands. They want a world war, and they want us to start it so that they can play their old propaganda tune which paints them as the “liberators” of peoples oppressed by the “capitalists.” Let us not be the communists’ dupes any longer.
I urge those who are awake and aware of the existence and workings of the international conspiracy to speak out as never before. We need watchmen on the tower warning their countrymen. We must expose the global cabal’s various prongs, including the powerful Zionist and communist conspiracies which share the same goal and whose leaders serve the same demonic master. We must use our influence to promote the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We must lead our nation to repentance and revival by our own good examples.
I close how I began, by quoting the Master. He said: “Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword” (Matthew 26:52). If the American People allow yet another wicked administration to take us into yet another unjust, undeclared, unconstitutional, immoral, offensive war, we will not only divorce ourselves further from God’s promise of divine protection, but will increase the likelihood that we will die by the sword ourselves.
As painful as it is to admit, we have become a warlike and belligerent nation. The only remedy to this dire situation is repentance – personal and national. We must repent, turn to God, and hold our political leaders accountable for their broken oaths and offensive behavior. If we want to become a truly secure nation, we must become a moral nation; a Christian nation. A nation armed with the sword of the Spirit and the power of Christ’s protection can never be overpowered, even though the entire communist world might combine against it.
I leave you with the words of Spencer W. Kimball who truthfully stated:
“We are a warlike people, easily distracted from our assignment of preparing for the coming of the Lord. When enemies rise up, we commit vast resources to the fabrication of gods of stone and steel—ships, planes, missiles, fortifications—and depend on them for protection and deliverance. When threatened, we become antienemy instead of pro-kingdom of God; we train a man in the art of war and call him a patriot, thus, in the manner of Satan’s counterfeit of true patriotism, perverting the Savior’s teaching:
““Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
““That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.” (Matt. 5:44–45.)
“We forget that if we are righteous the Lord will either not suffer our enemies to come upon us . . . or he will fight our battles for us.”
Let us not be guilty of the first offense. Rather, let us turn to God, proclaim peace, and prepare to defend ourselves in the strength of the Lord.
